A DAY IN THE LIFE OF…. Radd Seiger – partner at Kennedys, Birmingham…

Before Work…
I’m an early riser. I’m usually up at around 5am. Depending on which way the wind blows – and whether I am visiting any of our UK or international offices, seeing clients, or in Court – I either drive, take the train or fly. I usually have breakfast on the run!

I like to get to my work places early to give me plenty of time to catch up with people I work with before the grind of the day starts. I’m not a coffee or tea drinker so I usually dive straight into meetings at around 9am. When I’m in the office, I meet with colleagues to discuss a range of issues; sometimes they are on client matters and other times they are on internal matters such as team and firm performance and building the business. I detest long meetings so I usually try to keep them interesting, short and to the point!

Lunch is frequently a luxury but when I do catch up it’s usually with colleagues or clients and I try to aim for 12.30pm.

The afternoons are usually spent travelling between our offices or in meetings; either with clients or colleagues.

Evenings & Free Time…
I coach both youth football and rugby so Wednesday and Thursday evenings tend to be devoted to sport. I usually work pretty late Mondays and Tuesdays with a short break to see the family when I get home but I frequently pick up the reigns again when the family are all asleep. I try to organise client nights out on Mondays and Tuesdays too whilst Friday nights are preserved for catching up with friends.

About Radd…
Radd is an expert in defendant liability and casualty claims and health and safety issues. He is known in particular for dealing with catastrophic, fatal accident, high value complex as well as fraudulent claims and has developed an expertise in targeting rehabilitation at the right cases. He is also well known for devising alternative approaches to compensating claimants designed to keep legal costs to a minimum.
